Sulphur Springs kept their firm hold on first place in district with an 8-0 whipping of Pine Tree Thursday night.
The Lady Cats took control early in the 13-4A home softball game and advanced their district mark to 7-2 while Pine Tree fell to 1-8.
The win was a big improvement from Tuesday night’s 7-1 loss against Marshall.
The Sulphur Springs Wildcats jumped back into the district baseball race.
The Wildcats took a 12-6 decision at home Thursday against 13-4A foe Pine Tree.
Junior right-hander Colby Suggs got the complete game win on the hill. He pitched seven innings, allowing nine hits, six runs, walking one and striking out six.
“Colby battled, he’d thrown a lot of pitches but I knew he wanted to complete the game,” Jerrod Hammack, Sulphur Springs head baseball coach said. “Colby ended up throwing 118 pitches, we try to keep them under 100. But he will have an extra day off because of the holiday.”
